KZ1000A1 footrest studs

Please could you help?
Are the front footrest studs threaded into the frame or just locked in place by the nut at the rear?

Re: K1000/KZ1100 Fuel tap gasket/rubber

I finally used my loaf and when I looked properly I could see faint marks were the original rubber gasket sat on the tap handle flat. The grooved side goes against the tap body face.

K1000/KZ1100 Fuel tap gasket/rubber

Please could someone advise me which way round the fuel tap rubber gasket goes in. It's the round one with 5 holes in. One side has a groove right around the outside and the other side is flat...ish. It's been a long time since I took it apart and I can't remember. Thanks in anticipation. Roger

Re: Z1000A1 looking to sell

Just to round this off, I bought Mark's bike and absolutely love it. It came with loads of spares, new and old and with a lot of history too. I'm on a complete nostalgia kick because my dad bought a Z1A from Ray Round in 1974 GUE440N (I think the price was £1147.00 and it was delivered to you in tho...

KZ1000A1 Throttle cable bracket

Help needed please.
The two riveted parts of my throttle cable bracket have become a bit loose. Do they respond well to a large hammer and punch or is it best to drill the rivets out and replace with nuts and bolts?

Thanks Roger
